Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

Leave through and through - never mind the shambles we have, it could be worse, look over there.

 

My parents always told me, the only time you count from the bottom up is when you are running away from lions, never be last.

All other times, count from the top down - see how close to the top you are, after all, that is your target.

 

The Leave mentality seems just to be don't be at the bottom, but I fear the lions are getting nearer due to their choice.

 

Can't wait to rejoin whatever EU there is in a few years time - keep the light on!

From September - nothing like being current - this is nothing like being current!

 

I guess next we will have the notification that we have a deal with Germany (held aloft by Chamberlain, as opposed to our little fascist, Mr BoShambles)

Does anyone remember this prediction from the Guardian, back in March last year?

 

Basically saying we would be at the back of the Queue for vaccines.

 

Looking at numbers vaccinated, they seem to have got it the wrong way round.

I don't remember because the Remainers painted so much doom and gloom which I ignored.  The UK Government and the UK vaccine regulator have  performed really well with the Vaccine program  and have administered more vaccines to the public than the whole of the EU combined. Let's hope the Government targets for fast vaccines are met and there are no problems with supply.

I'm looking at that, the sandwich they took from the lorry driver will have more than likely contained ham from the EU, wait for the swine fever virus crossing with Covid 19.

The government's phased approach to implementing border checks means we are not going to be doing checks on meat products entering the UK from the EU until the 1st April. So the thing you're so gleefully pointing out still applies to us.

Better late than never,  the thing I'm pointing out is the ham that the EU is so worried about more than likely came from the EU all the lorry driver was doing is return to sender with a bit of bread and butter as an envelope, he should have eaten it in his cab and returned it the next day.

Macron was quick to close the UK / French border in the last few days of Brexit due to a spike in  COVID transmissions on this side of The Channel.

 

Give the French have been so lax in vaccinating their citizens & the Dutch are even worse at & they won't start mass vaccinations unti the 18th January, perhaps its time to reciprocate & close our borders to the French & Dutch, Channel tunnel, ports & airports? 

 

Afterall we already have a serious pandemic problem, especially in S. E. England & why should we put our citizens at risk & add to the NHS' problems by allowing in the great unvaccinated of our close neighbours?

That was after the UK PM had urgently told UK citizens living in the South East (i.e. near the channel ports) not to move about because he didn't know how serious the issue was. The French ban was lifted 2 days later after the UK had had chance to examine and assess the risks involved. Has a similarly urgent restriction of movement on French citizens living near Calais been applied by the French government?

If you want to solely discuss the pandemic and restrictions on movement because of it please do so in the dedicated thread. 
 

Thank you.

You can hardly blame the EU for not forgetting valuable lessons from the UK.

 

For the rest of it, rules are rules.

 

It's what the Leave mob never understood about the EU (it's a rules-based construct, not a country or federation) since before the referendum, and why so many in the UK appear to be so unprepared for them now .

 

Not to worry. It will sink in, eventually.

Rules are rules as you say....it obviously hasn't sunk in in Germany though.

 

"Numbers provided to German newspaper Handelsblatt by the country’s economics ministry show the country’s government is subject to 74 infringement proceedings by the European Commission for failing to implement EU regulations properly in German law.

German Green party politician Markus Tressel told the newspaper Germany was now “bottom of the class” for following EU rules and far from the “model pupil” it was sometimes portrayed as.

The infringements against Germany, which can be started for delayed implementation or inadequate conversion into national laws, relate to policy areas like air pollution, water quality and fire protection.

The new statistics echo the latest available EU-wide figures on enforcement actions from the end of 2016, provided by the European Commission, which found Germany joint top with Spain.

Those countries were followed closely by Belgium, Greece, Portugal and France – all longstanding fans of the European project."
